Mermaid High, Earthfest, Tribeca Film Festival and more

HAN Arts & Leisure with Sally Sanders, Steve Coulter and the “Reel Dad,” Mark Schumann, take a look at movies, the arts and other events going on in Fairfield County, Connecticut, and Westchester County, New York — and the surrounding area.

This week, Sally and Steve highlight the Tribeca Film Festival, before welcoming local guests.

Later, Bert Bernardi of Pantochino Productions in Milford talks about the latest original family production "Fast Times at Mermaid High."

“Fast Times at Mermaid High” is an original musical featuring book and lyrics by Bert Bernardi and music by Justin Rugg. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” Bernardi and Rugg have set the story in and about the halls of a high school in the early 1980s. The show features the sights, sounds, fashions and fads of the eighties, while telling the familiar tale of the mermaid who wishes for legs and life above the waves.

It will play as a limited engagement beginning Friday, April 22 at the Center for the Arts in Downtown Milford. Tickets and other information is available

Guests Stephanie Campbell, Manager of Maggie Daly Arts Cooperative (MDAC) and Stephany Brown, MDAC’s Community Arts and  Gallery Coordinator join Steve to discuss EarthFest.

The Kennedy Center’s Maggie Daly Arts Coop (MDAC) and the Bijou Theatre are hosting the first annual Bridgeport EarthFest on April 21, 2016. This celebration will bring all sectors of the community together to learn, experience and celebrate Earth Day through the arts.
